Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins is leaving the Jayhawks after one year.
This is no surprise, as Wiggins has previously said that he will leave Kansas after one year. Tomorrow, he will make an official announcement that he’s entering the 2014 NBA Draft.
Wiggins is expected to be joined by Kansas freshman Joel Embiid to leave early. Embiid has not officially made an announcement about the NBA Draft, but some news organizations already have Embiid as a Top 3 pick.
Wiggins was once considered the top pick in this year’s draft. However, as the season progressed, he dropped from being the top pick.
He is now considered a lottery pick to go somewhere in the top 13 picks. In addition, the Philadelphia 76ers covet Wiggins.
Yet, there is no guarantee that they will be able to draft Wiggins. In May, the 76ers will find out exactly where their draft selection will be.
The 76ers would like to put Wiggins with Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel. Noel will be entering his first season next year after sitting out this year recovering from his ACL injury.
Once Wiggins officially declares tomorrow, he is expected to sign a $180 million deal with Adidas, which originally offered him this massive shoe deal back in October of 2013.
